#1790: Super Kimchi

Here’s another cup I got during last year’s trip to Penang. As I’ve been mentioning, I’m trying to get everything reviewed before they expire! Not often do I get to go abroad and bring home noodles, so it’d be a horrible waste to lose any. Anyways, this is an interesting one – a kimchi flavor cup noodle from Malaysia. I don’t think I’ve seen many of those. Let’s check it out!

Here’s detail of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, empty sachet contents into cup and add 350ml boiling water. Re-cover and steep 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The garnish sachet.

Dehydrated kimchi.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added nautomaki and kamaboko. The noodles came out very soft and have a very comfort food feel to them. The broth is absolutely fantastic stuff – rich and full of spicy kimchi flavor. The kimchi bits are everywhere and of excellent quality. I wouldn’t have expected a Malaysian kimchi noodle cup to be so good! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888240110206.

#1788: Super Curry Flavour Noodles

Another one from last year’s Malaysia trip. Turns out I still have a few more I haven’t gotten to so it’s time to run through them before they expire. Curry. Malaysia. Super. Let’s check it out.

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add in the contents of the sachet and add 326ml boiling water. Re-cover and let steep 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

An included fork!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has a strong curry scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge) Added Dodo fishballs, coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, white onion and tau pok. The noodles hydrated pretty well but could have done a little better. The broth was full of curry taste, but so watery and thin that it just made me feel that less water would be a little better, even if it ended up much saltier. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.. EAN bar code 8888240100320.

#1785: Super Instant Noodles Black Pepper Crab Mi Goreng

One of the last ones I got during my trip to Penang, Malaysia last year to visit the folks at MyKuali. This is from a store called Econsave. I had seen this Super brand before but was always curious if I’d end up with any of them; very elusive. Let’s check out the pepper crab mi goreng!

Our power was out for just over an hour earlier – A nice change for some family time.

Shallot oil.

What do we have here?

Yup – crabstick!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added crab claw shaped fishcake, coriander, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and white onion. The noodles came out very soft – very light in texture. The black pepper flavor was definitely there in this one, as were elements common to mee goreng like the sweet soy flavor and nice oiliness. The small pieces of crabstick hydrated nicely and worked well. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888240110220.

#1495: Super Instant Noodles Mee Goreng

Here’s another poor cup noodle that got beaten up a bit on the flights back from Malaysia. Could’ve been between Penang and Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur and Taipei, or Taipei and Seattle – probably a combo of all three. Poor foam cup! There was a lot of turbulence last Sunday morning over Japan. Luckily, this is a noodle that gets drained anyways, and so it’ll come out fine. What’s funny is that the cup got banged up, but the noodle block is almost completely intact! Got this one at Econsave in Butterworth!  Let’s check this mee goreng out! By the way – you may have also seen ‘mi’ goreng. Mi Goreng and Mee Goreng are the same thing; they both mean fried noodles – there’s also Mie Goreng you may see as well.

Here are detail from the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. to prepare, add 300ml boiling water and steep for 3 minutes. Pour off the water and add in sachet contents and stir well. Enjoy!
